Deep Silver knows gamers want two things: an easier way to fell zombies, and to look great doing it. Fortunately, the two recently announced pre-order DLC packs have you covered. The Survivor Pack, which includes an XP booster among other goodies, is available for everyone who pre-orders in supported regions. Fashion Victim is available for pre-orders everywhere, and includes new skins for co-op mode. Full details are below.
Both packs will be available for purchase as well, via Live Marketplace, PS Store, and Steam, with The Survivor Pack running $4.99/400 MS Points and Fashion Victim $1.99/160 MS Points. Dead Island Riptide will launch for 360, PC, and PS3 on April 23.
• Pre-order DLC #1: The Survivor Pack:
– A BBQ Blade! This special pre-order pack contains an exclusive weapon only available in the Survivor Pack. How better to dispose of the wretched zombies than with a sharp blade? Add in some workbench-modifying and hook it up to a few fuel tanks to bring some heat to a zombie’s heart. The so-called “BBQ Blade” lets you wade through zombie hordes with ease.
– The coveted XP/stats booster: Want that extra edge to level up faster than your peers? Here’s your chance to get ahead of the pack.
– Never get lost – A seamless digital strategy map allows you to track collectibles, keep tabs on your quest progress and flag custom strategies to share with your friends.
– A special shop! The Survivor Pack will grant you access to a shop offering a special discount on weapons and items. Happy shopping!
(The Survivor Pack DLC will be made available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release in regions where it is available.)
• Pre-order DLC #2: Fashion Victim:
Tired of seeing your character go around wearing the same clothes all the time? The “Fashion Victim” pre-order DLC includes a set of new skins for all the player characters (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and “the new guy” John Morgan) in co-op mode.
(In North America the Fashion Victim DLC will be made available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release.)
Content will be redeemable via download on Xbox Live for versions of the game on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC and via the PlayStation Store.
